: in the new environment, our party faces many severe challenges. >> since then, the president's promised big reform, meant to shift the economy from fast paced to sustainable growth. those reforms are sure to be on the agenda at the national people's congress where investors hope the new administration will show they plan to walk the talk of reforms. investment house barclay's expects the government's anti-corruption drive to pick up speed after president xi jinping speeded up a campaign aimed at rooting out -- the brokerage, like many other firms hopes to see changes that would make the economy more account oriented. measures to help liberalize the financial sector and allow the currency to trade more freely. >> china policymakers are interested in bringing in more exchange rate flexibility. they need to have that before they open up their capital economy. >> reforms have raised awareness that this environmental problem can quickly become a social one. the pollution is a rut of years of double digit growth, no longer expected with the new leadership. most investors believe the government wi

and blind development. we must strengthen the economic environment and resolve to take forceful measures to complete this challenging task. >> now, we heard the announcements from before and there are many people who are worried about whether or not the government at the end of the day is really going to be willing to sacrifice growth in order to try to push through some of these reforms and address some of on these issues, not only on pollution, but also on debt. in terms of pollution, people are saying that if you really want to shut down a lot of these factory webs you could end up with a lot of workers who don't have any place to go. that is one of the main concerns that could actually leave some questions in people's minds as to whether or not the government will be able to push ahead and make these changes, julia. >> thank you. and if i also noticed a 12.5% rise in their defense budget, too. we've seen expressions of concern before the japanese, which is perhaps surprising. is that a waste of money? what's the feedback been on that rise? i know it's something they seem to do everyt
environment to work in. we should point out, these three individuals, these al jazeera journalists are among thousands of protesters, activists and other journalists who are facing a similar ordeal many say it's trials like this and other detentions that are a troubling sign that egypt is going back to a repressive, authoritative state instead of going towards fulfilling the promises of the 2011 revolution. >> syrian government forces are waging a campaign of siege warfare and starvation against civilians as part of the military campaign against rebel fighters. >> that's among the findings of a u.n.-mandated independent report which has just been released. the investigation, catalogue of the suffering 250,000 people who are besieged across syria, government forces were accused of denying basic aid in order to force people to choose between surrender and stashation. war crimes have been committed by opposition groups. more from geneva >> reporter: this is that report. 7th report of the independent international commission on inquiry on syria since that commission was set up by the u.n. in 201
room in a portfolio for equities in an environment of low rates, even if they're going higher, they're going higher in a very slow fashion, if you want. growth is subdued but is still supportive. so that's overall an environment where you want to be in stocks. >> you know, you're the big picture type of investor, and the big picture for the u.s. market for the last four years has been all of the easy money policy from the federal reserve and plenty of people feel like that's why we are sitting at all-time highs right now. so why wouldn't it reverse itself as the fed begins to pull back on the easy money and even if it starts to raise interest rates sooner rather than later, why isn't this a time when the market starts to retreat, where are we still going higher now? >> well, i think although, you know, we're expecting a normalization of rates at some point in the future, we're not talking about something very quick or very drastic. and at the same time the world is healing from its traumatic experience, if you want, from the crisis. so all of this is supportive. now, actually, clear

that an environment of low rates, low interest rates, especially when it p prevails for a long time, and we have had a long period of low interest rates can give rise to behavior that poses threats to financial stability. and therefore we need to be looking at that very carefully. and we are doing so in a very thorough way, i believe. there are a number of things that we are monitoring. measures of asset prices and whether or not they appear to be diverging from historical norms. namely it's hard but trying to spot any asset price bubbles that might be emerging. we're looking at leverage, which build up in leverage can be very dangerous to the financial system and pose stability risks. we're looking at trends in leverage. we're looking at credit growth to see whether or not that has potentially worrisome trends. in addition to that we're looking the particularly through the stress tests at financial institutions and a low interest rate environment. we have to worry about whether or not they're appropriately dealing with interest rate risk ls. we have been looking at that and, in fact, our current st

think that that's the environment which we've been in. why are they so low? it's not because there's so much liquidity. it's because there's a lot of fear. the fed is beginning its tapering program but yet this flood of fears has overwhelmed the fed's withdrawal of some of its monthly stimulus. so i think that if we do see yields go too much lower, it's all a question of why, and i think really the reason now is because you'd see a spike in fear, and that wouldn't be a good thing, but again it's the type of thing i think you can just sort of look through and actually think that maybe in a month from now we're going to see that this is actually -- we're on to the next story. >> rates are low because there's no demand for credit. >> i continue to think that rates are low. we've seen this rally in rates this year, 40 bits in the ten-year in two months because investors really are concerned about some sort of repricing of risk and this happened two weeks after the fed tapered. that's not a coincidence. >> there's no demand for credit on the consumer side. >> if you actually look at the cons
modify aircrafts to make it more like a home environment. increaseden an emphasis on noise reduction in aircrafts. a sound level would only allow you to have good speech interaction within one feet of each other. we have 47 decibels. they communicate 16 feet easily. once it was identify that you could get lower, we rely, alessio far we can go. we apply a continuous and uninterrupted barrier of installation -- insulation. we isolate the component that passed through the barriers. we also have to treat the systems within the barrier already. ventilation fans and whatnot. it is about optimization. more we add, the more weight you add to the aircraft. this would be what would typically come on aircraft. but we develop an whole new only two thirds of the way, it is 10 decibels quieter or half the noise level. interior,f the basic it would be $25 million range. we will have a wide body aircraft. 747, that is just what we do from the interior completion standpoint. class coming up, the bank of nova scotia will be in the spotlight. we will speak to the ceo about the first-quarter earnings re

is that these policymakers are making decision necessary a very different growth environment that we've seen in many, many years. people are talking about how the economy is slow and is burdened with debt. there were a lot of questions about the financial sector and the health of it. and the government really doesn't have the same levers that past administrations have had in order to try to stimulate growth. so this is a back drop that they are facing at this time. the big question that people are have here going into this congress is just how will the slowing economy play with those reforms? the government has made big announcements at the end of the last week that we were going to make quite dramatic changes in a chinese contest. but we haven't really seen them walk the talk. that's what investors are going to want to see. they're going to want to see serious efforts in progress for the -- for not only the policies themselves, but also the pace of change. >> thanks so much, eunice. we'll watch for that later on this week. now, the u.s. is bracing for another massive late winter snowstorm, this time taki
. you have comcast in the future trying to get through the regulatory environment eyeing time warner because they want to have a broadband capacity. they want to have the pipes. what is the impact of all this with increasingly video as an important part of what the internet is about? >> we want to have as much competition as we can in infrastructure. we may not have enough. the concerns about time warner and comcast are about who is the competitor. google fiber is present in four cities. we want as much competition as possible. >> how does it work? in my home state, asheville is one of the cities. >> the simple answer is the fiber is run to the poll or the curb and for a small fee, you pay to get it connected. if you want slow speed connectivity which is about five megabits, we will give it to you free for seven years. most people like to pay the roughly equivalent internet connection fees they do today and they get almost one gigabit speed up and down. it is revolutionary. >> in terms they have not seen anything like it. >> the speed is so much greater. are people clamoring for this

on the environment beyond the end of this term. it's an interesting read. >> fossil fuels, they don't like them. by the way, china in their new five five-year plan, thank you, mao, is talking about environmental cleaner. that's instrumental. you got to be able to gauge the ability to be able to see your feet in the smog there. and i know that that's where the real issues are for global warming. obviously they take our jobs. they do a lot of global warming. but we're worried about keystone. in the meantime the trucks and the trains are going to take it all. they are terrible ways. trains don't use that much pollution, but understand that when warren buffett said it's better, a big pipeline cop,mpany, but burlington northern will be the primary beneficiary so i thought he was unconflicted and also unqualified. >> very nice. down is down 27 or 29 points let's get to bob pisani on the floor. good morning. >> good morning. we started in positive territory on the s&p but we just turned negative and, of course, we were at historic highs not just there but the midcap and small cap in

of the environment in which we pursue all these missions. first we operate in a time of severe budget constraints. as secretary of the department of homeland security, i therefore believe i am obligated to identify and eliminate inefficiencies, waste and unnecessary duplications of resources across dhs' large and decentralized beurocracy while pursuing important missions such as the recap tallization of the aging coast guard fleet. second, i am mindful of the surveys that reflect that morale is low within various components of dhs. i intend to remind our workforce of the importance of their homeland security mission and that the department's greatest asset in the pursuit of these missions is our people. i will be a champion for the men and women of dhs, and i will advocate on their behalf. i look forward to working with this committee. the chairman is correct that i am actively working to full the vacancies in senior management positions. i do that on a daily basis. i look forward to a shared vision and a partnership with congress on our important mission. thank you. >> thank you, secretary. i be
their bills. this bill provides a commonsense way to protect our environment by setting emissions standards that are actually achieveable. i urge my colleagues to support this bill and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from indiana yields back. the gentleman from kentucky reserves. the gentleman from california is recognized. mr. waxman: i yield three minutes to the gentleman from west virginia, mr. rahall. the chair: the gentleman is recognized for three minutes. mr. rahall: thank you, mr. chairman. i appreciate the ranking member yielding me this time, especially since we do not see eye to eye on this particular piece of legislation. we do see eye to eye on numerous other issues before the congress and the american people, such as protecting the health and safety of our nation's coal miners and our american workers, and indeed, we all, both sides of the aisle, share the common goal of wanting to provide clean water, clean air, and health and safety for our families each and every day of the year. in that sense, we all have that common ground. the
policy, environment, economics, all that goes beyond the front tears of nations of europe. that has to be done on the european level. we are doing that. >> give me a concrete example of something you're proud of, that the european parliament has done in the last five years? >> security, assistance in times of crisis, energy policy and security of gas deliveries, that's what we do. >> how has that worked better on a european level than it would with your country, poland saying, right, this is where we'll get our energy. >> if you put together your reserves, if you negotiate together and bargain on behalf of the bigger group of countries, you're much stronger, you get better prices, better conditions. >> let me ask you a question. you mentioned foreign policy there. you just got back from ukraine. that's our top story here on bbc world today, the crisis in ukraine. first of all, a european parliamentary delegation going to kiev, what can you hope to achieve? you don't have particular weight in terms of foreign policy. it was the foreign ministers last week who were on the ground doing
different? >> no. it's the same environment. everything is the same. just -- like i said before, 12 years in the nba, not a problem, not an issue. year 13, not a problem, not an issue. same old, same old. >> that's it for me. i'm brooke baldwin. "the lead with jake tapper" starts right now. >>> the white house warns russia not to do what russia may have already started doing. i'm jake tapper. this is "the lead." the world lead. it's playing out like a tom changes see thriller. ousted ukrainian president viktor yanukovych breaks his silence and vows to fight for his country's future as russian troops are spotted. the politics lead. flashback friday. withheld pages from the clinton presidency is released and shines new light on hillary clinton. >>> and the buried lead. actor seth rogen calls out washington, d.c., for not calling out something that is important. seth rogen live on "the lead" today. good afternoon, everyone. i'm jake tapper. we're going to begin, of course, with the world lead and armed men who may be tied to the russian military who have seized control of two airports
environment further to that point is an entirely different story right now. the emergency right now is to have a program by the imf and other geopolitical standpoint to have some sort of a dialogue toh russia on the best way get out of this crisis. >> dragon capital was one of a number that signed an international appeal to the investment community. theask that you use all of means to your disposal to promote a peaceful resolution to the conflict -- it goes on. how much can this accomplish? how much can your partners do to influence [inaudible] putin's actions? whether with respect to they can do by having a sort of mature into a discussion with the russian president. we wrote that letter. we signed it together with the in orderestment banks to mark a point and say that anybody can act at its own local level. i believe that the 11% drop in sx today is a political argument being sent to russia saying this has a cost. do not agree with any military intervention, there are a few tools at the disposal of funds and entities around the world to highlight the cost of the current operation. >> did you
is in line with ours and it will be hard to tighten lending standards, improve the environment, and so on. the priority appears to shift from investment to consumption domestically and china. we think they'll timidly will prevail because the main determination they have is to keep it running at those sorts of levels. in the last 24n hours after consolatory words from the russian president, vladimir putin. will the calm last? market pointestern of view interrupted so violently over the weekend and the beginning part of this week that it does seem to have a renewed call man did is very welcome and it certainly fits our view that this will unfold more in the corridors of politics and hopefully anything more violent. that being said, there are a lot of concerns about where it is leading the concerns about the outlook for commodity prices, what happens with ukraine's gas deal with russia, so on. the markets will remain nervous. >> one of your analysts making the point that one reason why violence on the ground may be less likely is the fact that russia has leverage over the ukraine in the shap
. and have loosened it created a two way that. we have more liquid environments prevent the situation where markets react in a negative way. muchve us a sense of how you see this going forward and is now the right time for investors to come out of china? >> i think a lot of investors have been coming out and if you look at the chinese financials, lows for at all-time very long time to compel them in developing markets and you could make the argument that the market is pricing a lot of ourtive news in already and colleagues on the equity strategy side are negative because situations have adjusted so much already. >> i have a question about russia. the market is looking for a defed ration and growth -- deration ingrowth. >> russian was looking to slow before the ukraine and the numbers were weak investment and investment is a poor story. sure. they are coming back and it is negative for quite some time. newsything, the recent affects sentiment and foreign investor sentiment. and the central bank believes that we are below that. reach thought we could 2.5%. where russia and the economic front
